Out & About
IN YOUR WELL-EARNED free time, you will find no shortage of sights to see in Penang. A particularly popular spot is George Town – the state’s capital – when you will find a cultural free-for-all and a plathora of landmarks and activities located around every corner.
Penang is particularly well known for its endless, not to mention delicious dining opportunities and providing you with the chance to get a true taste of the state. Depending on whether you would like a chance to sit down and unwind, or are looking for the opportunity to test out some of George Towns food stalls, either way you will be spoilt for choice.
Malaysia in particular is becoming famous for its incredible cities and the regeneration taking place there, and in a place like George Town you will find an abundance of rooftop bars to maximise the incredible views. If you are in search of a chance to take in the city after a long day of meetings, these are the perfect spots to do so.
Speaking of famous, Penang has become quite the hotspot when it comes to shopping, offering glamorous centres to shop away a few hours. Straights Quay is Penang’s first and only seafront retail marina, perfectly blending together a mix of the state's culture and food and a revival of old traditions and events.
If you find yourself with the opportunity to stay at the Haven Resort Hotel, take up that chance. Located centrally in Ipoh, not only are you in the perfect place to venture into the business district but also in a place of such beauty you will be booking a return trip before you know it.
